Uptown/Downtown: Richard Lindner’s Fun City


By Cornell Fine Arts Museum.

German-American artist Richard Lindner (1901-1978) fled his home country at the advent of the Second World War. After a few years as a graphic designer in Paris, in 1941 he moved to New York where he worked as an illustrator for prominent magazines such as Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar.

His experience of the city of New York, especially the underbelly of the urban center, informed his painting and his graphic work throughout his mature career. Erotic, bold, and colorful, and often humorous, Lindner’s imagery is rooted in the nocturnal life of the cabarets, the busy streets, and the characters that inhabit them.

This installation features the portfolio Fun City, created in 1971, in which depictions of the city’s eccentric dwellers vibrate off the paper using creative design elements and pulsating color juxtapositions.

Tai Chi in the Garden


By Mead Botanical Garden. 

Head to Mead Botanical Garden for a unique experience to practice Tai Chi in the garden with Tony Garcia, certified Tai Chi for Health Master Trainer.

What is Tai Chi?: Tai Chi Chuan or tai chi, pronounced “tie chee,” is a gentle exercise program that is a part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Tai Chi is derived from the martial arts and is composed of slow deliberate movements, meditation, and deep breathing which enhance physical health and emotional well-being.

Benefits: Tai Chi improves balance, agility, strength, flexibility, stamina, muscle tone, pain and coordination. This low-impact, weight-bearing exercise strengthens bones and can slow bone loss, thus preventing the development of osteoporosis.

Meeting location: Please meet on the Grove Stage 10 minutes prior to the start time. (Follow the shell stone path to the left of the public restrooms north to the Grove Stage.)

Introduction to Composting Class – VIRTUAL

By composting, you can help reduce your overall landfill contribution and make organic matter able to improve the chemical, physical and biological characteristics of your soils.

Attend a City of Winter Park “Introduction to Composting” class and learn how to turn yard and kitchen waste into organic matter to use as a soil amendment, mulch, and potting soil. The composting of yard trash is an environmentally sound way to reduce solid waste by recycling a useful resource. If you have a large amount of food waste that ends up in the trash can or feel like you should contribute less to the overall flood of waste headed to our landfills, this class is for you. Designed for residents interested in learning about backyard composting, attendees will learn the basics of home composting, how to build your own compost system, and the benefits of composting. The workshop includes a presentation and an information packet.

We are offering free backyard composters to Winter Park residents. To become eligible, you must meet the following requirements:
1. Must reside within the City of Winter Park Boundary. Check your eligibility by viewing a map of the City of Winter Park Boundary.
2. Residents must attend one of our upcoming FREE Introduction to composting classes being led by UF/IFAS Extension Orange County. Limit one composter per household.
